Blink_me26 tells us more.
I did not expect this to get posted at all haha well anyway it was actually a pink unicorn onesie (yes I'm a child inside), I'm definitely going to buy it because it's not the seller's fault and my best friend is going to buy it off me for a onesie party she's going to so I'll just change the address to her house, no harm done. I'm very surprised I won the auction because I am always outbid at the last minute, the demand for pink unicorns probably isn't very high. Thanks for your comments, even the one that said I was an asshole lol :)

Just ask to cancel the order. Explain why. They usually understand. If you are nice to them they are usually nice back! Works for me.
Well you will have two of that item now, so if whatever it is gets stolen or broken,you have an extra one.
Take back the one you bought in the store. Unless you were dumb enough to open it right away while you had an active bid on ebay on that same thing... in which case you pretty much deserve it.
Why bid then...If you want it and can afford it then bid but don't bid on the off chance you'll be outbid that makes you a price driving up asshole
Op did NOT bid because he thought he would be outbid. He bid because he wanted the item and the went into town and ending up finding the item. Bought it in town because he thought he would have been out bid on eBay. Next time READ the FML before you call the OP an asshole.
My point is still valid. Why Bid on something and not wait to see it through, It's sheer stupidity, The though process goes like this "Oh look there that thing i want on Ebay, Place Bid. Later, Oh theres that thing I am bidding for on eBay, I may have won the bid best check somehow, if not I can comeback and get one from here" With the abundance If Internet cafe and Wifi Spots in most modern towns shouldn't be hard to check on the bid
I don't know about you guys, but I don't bid til there's only a couple minutes left. So I guess I'm one of those people that sit and wait. Having to deal with assholes that back out after they've already won is a pain in the ass. OP shouldn't have bought on impulse, it's completely his fault.
